Kevin Knox v Miles Bridges

Kevin Knox or Miles Bridges

Knox is lengthier, younger, could potentially be a better shooter and has higher defensive potential but Bridges is stronger, more athletic, a better playmaker/ball handler and a better rebounder.

Who would you guys take because if Knox has a big-ish season he could push Bridges back to where he was to begin with which is top 10 to late lotto.

If you believe some scouts,

If you believe some scouts, Kevin Knox doesn't look very NBA-ready and struggles with his decision making and overall basketball instincts, draftexpress have even taken him out of their 2018 mock draft for now.

So Kevin Knox is more of a project, while Miles Bridges will be more of an instant-impact guy who can help your team on his first contract. Miles Bridges also seems to fit with what NBA teams want right now: a strong multi-positional defender who can shoot, pass and hustle. If he gets better over the year, I can see a team picking him somewhere between 5 and 10.

2018 has an amazing top 4 (Ayton, Doncic, Bamba, Porter Jr.), after that I think it's wide-open.

Knox did not impress me much

Knox did not impress me much with his fluidity as an athlete. He has potential as you said but Bridges is more of a sure thing with upside himself. I thought Bridges could have snuck into the top 10 this year because of how much the NBA values verstalility, athleticism and three point shooting although some think Bridges numbers were a fluke.

If he shoots 29% next year from 3 he could fall out of the lottery if some players step up but I would imagine he will have a stellar season shoot at least mid 30's from 3 and go top 10 next year.
